Title: 2016 Uncle Barry Memorial Weekend
Post by: knuckle on April 12, 2016, 11:26:52 PM
Hi there all. Yes, I'm still alive.

Just to let you know that Uncle Barry's Memorial will be 27th-29th of May this year.

Barry and Jane understandably would like to pare things down a little this year regarding cooking, shooting etc.
Over the last few years they have very kindly brought a lot of extra equipment to ensure we all don't go without.
However, the extre pressure this puts on them is massive, requiring every memeber of their family to load up cars and trailers, and than bring it all from Dartford.

After careful consideration they respectifully ask that people wishing to attend this year bring everything they require for the meet-up. So essentially If you want to camp, sleep, shoot and eat, please bring a tent, sleeping bag, rifle, air, ammo and food etc. I'm sure you get the idea. You will also need to control and remove your own rubbish and this will be monitored.

People will need to declare how long they wish to stay for, what they want to do and pay up front. 

Prices on site are as follows: (Please remember, these are John's prices; they have nothing to do with Barry and Jane)

Tent +1 person     5 per night
Extra person         2 per night
Shooting               5 per day
Fishing                  5 per day

IF I've got anything wrong or left anything out, I will update accordingly.

Hugs and Kisses, Nic.

Hey hey hey........the big man returns! 8) ;D


Many thanks for the update mucker, what you've said about paring things down is totally understandable and fair.

I know it's a massive undertaking for Lil' Barry and Jane, and indeed all of the Hutchins clan, so having less stress will make the weekend more enjoyable for them, which is only right and correct.

atvb, Gareth. ;)

Jill and I will be there Nic but only during the day.

I think the charge for shooting is only for live stuff.
Plinking and the competition no charge except for
the entrance fee for competition.

See you on 27th May

Unfortunately, due to commitments I can't get out of, I very sadly won't be able to attend Uncle Barry's Memorial Meet-Up this year. :'(

I will however, be thinking of Uncle Barry over the weekend, and hoping that all those who are able to attend have a very enjoyable time, befitting of the past occasions spent at Woodfry's Farm in his company. ;)


So, I extend my Very Best Wishes to everyone who will be there, and hope someone will kindly raise a glass to Barry on my behalf. Thanks. ;)
